Many of the 40 million widowed women in India are treated as outcasts and burdens to their families. They are blamed for their husbands' deaths, and are expected to mourn until they themselves die. For widows, earning a living and supporting their children can be hard, and many of them are forced into poverty or prostitution. Nobody should be treated as less of a human because of their social status or because of circumstances that aren't up to them, and this injustice is something that needs to be addressed. Let's use our privilege and resources to help these women gain some dignity, love, and support for their wellbeing.

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." -Matthew 25:37-40

About Widows

Upon becoming a widow in South Asia, a woman is blamed for her husband's death and enters a life of shame. Burdened with the responsibility to care for her children alone, she is often forced into begging or even prostitution.

You donation will help GFA give widows a means of renewable income, like a sewing machine or farm animals. You'll also help with daily essentials, like blankets and water filters.

This support will be given through the local church, giving widows a chance to learn about the love of Jesus Christ.
